Even though it follows its predecessors’ footsteps when it comes to the estate body style, a lot has changed in the all-new Audi RS4 Avant. The car is no longer powered by a screaming V8 motor. Instead, it gets a torquey turbo V6 engine.

The RS4 Avant gets all the usual beefed up styling elements from the old Audi RS models. Upfront, there are massive air inlets with the typical RS honeycomb structure and the wide single frame grille. Compared to the A4 Avant, the wheel arches are 30mm wider and are given added emphasis by the quattro blisters. At the back, the RS-specific diffuser insert, the oval tailpipes and the roof edge spoiler make for a distinctive look. The car rides on 19-inch forged aluminium wheels as standard while 20-inch wheels are available as an option.

The biggest change has been made under the hood wherein you will no longer find the naturally aspirated V8 motor. The RS4 Avant now comes with a bi-turbo V6 engine which makes the same amount of power (450bhp) but a lot more torque than before. In fact, it makes 600Nm of torque – 170Nm more than the previous model. Thanks to the additional grunt, the RS4 does a 0-100kmph in 4.1 seconds and hits an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.

All that power is sent to the permanent all-wheel drive via an 8-speed tiptronic with optimised ratios for quicker acceleration. The new RS4 is now on sale in the UK with prices starting at £61,625 (Rs 52.52 lakh). Deliveries, meanwhile, are expected to begin early next year.
